Haywood County, North Carolina, is considering a second amendment sanctuary resolution. Collectivists are everywhere, even in the mountains of North Carolina.
Sometimes when the topic of gun rights comes up, people pick a side and put blinders on. In general there seems to be no room for compromise, let alone any listening with an open mind to what someone from the opposite side has to say.
But like in so many other ways, Haywood County is a special place where people find ways to overcome obstacles and work through issues.
That was on full display Tuesday evening when the county commissioner meeting room in the Historic Courthouse was jam-packed with people — most of whom were speaking up during a public comment session to ask that Haywood become a gun sanctuary county.
If you see yourself as passing “harmless resolutions that comfort people,” then you should stand down now. But if you see yourselves as an essential cog in the liberty machinery of America, and are seriously committed to the fight, I commend this resolution to you.
Either way, as long as you’re being honest about things, my readers in your county will know where you stand.
UPDATE: Gaston County, N.C., is also considering a 2A resolution soon. I just penned a letter to them, encouraging their acceptance of the resolution, but with the same stipulations of seriousness.
UPDATE #2: Mr. Tracy Philbeck, Chairman of the Gaston County Board of Commissioners, sends this article in response.
